This is the best accomodation in this small Afrikaner village well positioned on the N2 midway between Cape Town and the Garden route.It is converted from old farm buildings so the rooms have high cool ceilings.
We had a large clean room with two good beds,a bit short on cupboard space but with a flat screen TV.The en suite bathroom was again large and modern with a separate walk in shower.All spotless.
There was a pleasant shady garden and small swimming pool but with some bird droppings on the loungers.
The hotel has a restaurant within the property walls which serves perfectly reasonable food with some really interesting dishes. Food is certainly taken seriously here as the manager is also the chef.
Excellent cooked breakfast served on the patio.
No air conditioning and little apparent security. But maybe in Riversdale you dont need them.
